Made in 1941, this is a good example of a cooperative relationship between the military and cinema-- yes, it is propaganda.
Still, it may be possible to relax and enjoy the merits of this film knowing that the civilian Commander in Chief at the time was popularly elected, and did not parade around like a monkey in a military uniform.
I enjoyed the movie.
